AS-EASY-AS for Windows - Free!

Post by Moderator » Sun Sep 11, 2011 12:43 am

As of 10/1/2006, As-Easy-As for window was discontinued. Copies of the program can still be downloaded and FREE full licenses can be installed using the information below. TRIUS no longer supports or answers questions regarding this program, but other users visiting these forums might. Here are the links for the program and the user's manual,

What is the purpose of posting this message and making this program available? It doesn't even work in Win 7.

Although the program was disontinued many years ago, unbelievable as it may sound, thee are still people out there that are using it, and those are the people this forum was set-up for.

Ok, I see. It just seemed weird. Do you think there are any plans by TRIUS to revive these products, or are they gone forever? If they don't plan to revive them, do you think they might release the source code to forge, or something, so others may revive them?

I was using their aseasy program up until I switched to Windows 7. I wasn't able to make it run under that. Too bad, because I had many years of my accounting in it. If can ever find out how I can run it in Win 7, I'll go back in a heartbeat.

Hmm... I had no problem installing Aseasy for Win under Windows 7, 32-bit and have been running it without any problems. What sorts of issues are you having with it, Bill?

Me too, Robertc. No problems here. Bill might be doing something wrong :-)

It's working now. I was able to install it and all is fine. I had tried multiple times in the past and couldn't do it - go figure.

I'm trying to help a friend retrieve some spreadsheet files from an ancient version of Excel. It can save in various formats but not CSV. Gnumeric reads the native files but can't read the cells containing dates. So I thought I'd try AS-EASY-AS (having used the DOS version a long while ago).

I've downloaded asawin95.exe but when I try to run it I get an error "NTVDM.EXE has encountered a problem and needs to close".

I did a web search and found (at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... f979e599af) that this error has arisen when running some DOS programs since one of the Windows XP updates, and the suggestion to run http://hotfixv4.microsoft.com/Windows%2 ... 86_zip.exe.

I have tried that but I am still getting the same error.

Have others encountered that error with the Windows version of AS-EASY-AS? Is there a solution?

Haven't encountered any similar problems. I've run it under all flavors of Windows XP. Currently running it on two systems, Win-XP-SP3 and Win-7, 32-bit, and I am not getting the error you mention. Also the NTVDM.EXE error is related to trying to run 16-bit programs and I am pretty sure that ASAWIN is a 32-bit one, so it shouldn't cause the problem. But then again, this is Windows, so who knows :-(
